    Sen. Bernie Sanders claimed that Americans widely embrace a 'far-left agenda,' noting support for increased minimum wage and expanded healthcare. The Vermont lawmaker made the remarks to CNN's Jake Tapper on Sunday during an appearance on State of the Union, in which he also confessed that he'd be willing to join the Biden-Harris administration. While speaking about implementing President-elect Joe Biden's progressive policies, Sanders recalled how their two teams met before the election to determine key issues.

    Allies of President Trump have considered acquiring and investing in conservative television network Newmax TV, which has championed the Commander-in-Chief and has yet to call the election for Joe Biden, report says. The Wall Street Journal reported that Hicks Equity Firm, a private-equity firm linked to a co-chair of the Republican National Committee, has expressed interest in Newsmax as a competitor to Fox News.  Newsmax has seen an uptick in viewership since Election Day, when some conservatives and Trump-loyalists became vexed that Fox News and other similar outlets named Joe Biden the president-elect.  Based in West Palm Beach, Florida, where the Trump International Golf Course sits, Newsmax has rallied behind the President's Trump's unfounded claims of election fraud.  The Wall Street Journal reports that allies of President Trump (left), including Hicks Equity Firm under founder Thomas Hicks (right), have expressed interest in acquiring Newsmax  Newsmax TV is a...
    Republican Governor Asa Hutchinson broke with Donald Trump on Sunday, claiming the president should concede to Joe Biden and allow him to begin the transition process. 'I expect Joe Biden to be the next president of the United States,' Hutchinson told NBC News' Chuck Todd during an interview on 'Meet the Press' Sunday morning. With this, Hutchison became the sixth Republican governor to acknowledge that Trump lost the election and Biden won – while many other Republicans have either stayed silent on the matter or lined up behind the president. Only five Republican senators and ten GOP House members have outright acknowledged Biden as the president-elect. Trump's former National Security Advisor John Bolton, who has become a staunch and frequent critic of the president, is one of the Republicans to break with the Party on the election. Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson became the sixth sitting Republican governor to acknowledge...

    Joe Biden called on the Trump administration to take 'urgent action' on the rising coronavirus cases around the country as he blasted the president's response as 'woefully lacking'.  The president-elect warned on Friday night that an 'immediate federal response' is needed as the pandemic is 'accelerating right now' and 'does not respect dates on the calendar'.  His comments came after President Trump delivered an update on 'Operation Warp Speed', his administration's effort to aid the development of a vaccine, from the Rose Garden on Friday afternoon.  Trump claimed during the briefing that a vaccine could be available to the entire population as early as April and stated that his administration would never be enforcing a lockdown, despite the growing number of cases nationwide.    Joe Biden (right) called on the Trump administration to take 'urgent action' on the rising coronavirus cases around the country as he blasted the president's...
    CLAYMONT, Del. (CBS) — President-elect Joe Biden attended Archmere Academy, a prep school in Claymont. The school is extremely proud of its most famous alumnus. “It sort of put Delaware and put Archmere on the map in a way that it maybe hasn’t been before,” Principal Katie Theil said. These walkways may never be the same again. “I don’t know that there are any alumni that has the national awareness of a Joseph Biden,” Archmere Academy Headmaster Michael Marinelli said. Biden’s march toward the White House began inside Saint Norbert Hall at Archmere Academy in Claymont back in 1957. “I think we’re all using it as a huge flex,” Lily Sabine, a senior, said. Chatter that would have existed on these grounds in the 1960s now finds itself on Instagram. “I know a lot of us put on our Instagram stories and I don’t know about everyone else, but I...
    Incoming White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain said Thursday night that President-elect Joe Biden will appoint a COVID czar as soon as he enters the Oval Office.  'As a candidate for president, Joe Biden promised that he would put an official in charge of the COVID response in the White House. He will do that,' Klain said on MSNBC's 'The Last Word with Lawrence O'Donnell.'  Klain also revealed that Biden has spoken to Republicans, in both Congress and the governors' mansions, despite President Donald Trump's refusal to concede and many in his party remaining tight-lipped about the election result.

    There were 49 SPAXELS drones involved in the maiden 2012 Ars Electronica flight in the skies over Linz, Austria and in the years since, the number of drones that can be commanded simultaneously continues to grow. Swarms can be comprised of hundreds, even thousands of craft.  “Technically we have the capacity of 5,000, 10,000 or even more because we have an intelligence command and control system to range all of our drones,” Zhiyuan Li, vice president of EHang Egret, which once put on a 1,374-drone show at the City Wall of Xi’an in China, told Inavate in 2019. “But such a big show will be limited by lots of factors, like we have to apply for the certification of the airspace first, which will definitely be very large.”  Intel currently holds the world record for most unmanned aerial vehicles airborne simultaneously, which was set as part of the company’s 50th...
    President Donald Trump is plotting another White House run in 2024 even as he floats wild theories about getting state electors to flip in his favor so he can stay in power.   The odds of President Trump over turning Joe Biden's victory get slimmer as states begin to certify their election results, more news outlets called Arizona for the Democratic candidate, and Trump's own campaign has failed to turn up evidence of massive voter fraud. But that hasn't stopped the president from throwing out ideas on how he could stay in the White House and planning to steal Biden's glory by announcing another presidential run on the day his Democratic rival is certified the winner of the 2020 contest.  President Donald Trump is plotting another White House run in 2024 even as he floats wild theories about how he can stay in the White House Joe Biden's victory becomes...
    Jeffrey Epstein's victims have urged Joe Biden to pursue Prince Andrew 'more aggressively' once he is sworn in as US President. Lisa Bloom, a lawyer who represents five of the women, said she hopes the new administration will 'fully investigate' the Duke of York. The Royal, 60, has been accused of having sex with Virginia Giuffre three times but denies the claims. Ms Bloom told the Mirror: 'I do have hope that the Biden-Harris administration will be more aggressive in standing with victims of sexual assault. 'It is essential that Prince Andrew cooperate with authorities, as he said he would, so that they can fully investigate him and all others accused of enabling prolific predator Jeffrey Epstein.'

    Fox News host Tucker Carlson kicked off his Thursday night program by blasting the media for supposedly allowing a “news blackout” on President-elect Joe Biden, seemingly ignoring the fact that President Donald Trump has not made any public remarks and has barely been seen in a full week. In recent days, despite the president refusing to accept the results of the election while leaning on long-shot lawsuits he hopes will overturn Biden’s victories in several key states, Biden has begun the process of picking his White House staff, starting with longtime aide Ron Klain as White House chief of staff. While the president-elect has made a handful of speeches over the past few days and held a press conference, he has faced some criticism—largely from conservative media—over his lack of public accessibility. Additionally, Fox News hosts have complained that the media hasn’t pressed Biden during his press availabilities on his...
    Joe Biden will immediately halt construction of Donald Trump's southern border wall as soon as he is sworn into office, but will leave whatever has already been built in place. So far, Trump's administration has spent $15 billion on adding to and reinforcing areas with existing barriers and building brand new 30-foot-tall bollard fencing. While 400 miles of these see-through black metal slats have been built, only 12 miles of the border did not have some sort of existing barrier before construction commenced, The Dallas Morning News noted in a report Wednesday evening. Texas Democratic Representative Henry Cuellar said that voters not opting for a second Trump term was largely due to Americans' opposition to the border wall. 'It was a referendum on the wall,' said Cuellar, who represents Texas' 28th District, which spans from San Antonio to the border between the U.S. and Mexico. Joe Biden will immediately...
    CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — West Virginia Gov. Jim Justice on Wednesday refused to acknowledge that Joe Biden won the presidential election, four days after the race was called and despite no evidence yet from Republicans of widespread voter fraud. “As far as acknowledging that the election is over, I do not do that,” said Justice, an ally of President Donald Trump. He vowed to support Biden if legal challenges and any potential recounts do not change the outcome of the race call. “If Joe Biden is truly our legally elected president of the United States, we should all celebrate and support him,” he said. Justice spoke at his regularly scheduled coronavirus news briefing where officials decried the state shattering records for new cases. Biden’s transition team has formed a task force on fighting the pandemic and has doubled down on wearing masks and testing, two areas of common ground between...
    Stacy Fernández November 12, 2020 7:26AM (UTC) This article originally appeared on The Texas Tribune. In his first comments on the presidential election since election night, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott avoided acknowledging former Vice President Joe Biden's victory and said the process of vote counting and recounts should play out. "Democracy depends upon fair and open elections. We all agree that every legal vote counts and that illegal votes do not. There are processes in place in each state to determine if any vote is legal, and we must respect those processes to ensure the integrity of our elections," Abbott said in a written statement Monday evening. : Abbott's statement comes days after major news outlets called Biden president-elect on Saturday as results indicated that he would win the swing state of Pennsylvania and secure enough electoral votes to ascend to the presidency. Trump has not conceded, claiming the...
    Former Vice President Joe Biden announced on Wednesday that he had chosen Ron Klain as his incoming White House chief of staff. Biden, who has been declared president-elect by multiple media outlets, is tasking Klain to lead the executive office of the president. Klain will also serve as a senior adviser to Biden and will help staff the incoming administration. “Ron has been invaluable to me over the many years that we have worked together, including as we rescued the American economy from one of the worst downturns in our history in 2009 and later overcame a daunting public health emergency in 2014,” Biden said in a statement announcing the appointment. Klain, who helped advise the former vice president’s recent 2020 campaign, has longstanding ties to Biden. Between 1989 and 1992, Klain was the chief counsel to the United States Senate Judiciary Committee, then chaired by Senator-Joe Biden. When President...
    President-elect Joe Biden has tapped political veteran Ron Klain as his incoming White House chief of staff, continuing to shape his close team of advisers once he assumes the presidency in January. [ READ: Joe Biden Begins His Transition, Despite Trump’s Claims ]Biden's selection of Klain – which was first reported by The Washington Post prior to the official announcement – is the first Cabinet position Biden has announced. Klain was formerly Biden's chief of staff when he served as vice president under President Barack Obama and he was also the White House's Ebola Response Coordinator. The announcement follows Biden naming several public health experts, including former Surgeon General Vivek Murthy, to his so-called Transition COVID-19 Advisory Board on Monday.

    Growing up behind a veil of secrecy, the adorable little girl who Hunter Biden didn’t want to claim as his own is a happy two-year-old living in rural Arkansas with her mother and her mother's family.  On Saturday, Joe Biden invited six of his grandchildren on stage when he announced to the world that he had won the 2020 presidential election. But a seventh was missing from the smiling ranks of America’s next First Family: Navy Joan Roberts - the two-year-old daughter Hunter fathered with stripper Lunden Roberts then shamefully denied was his.  The child’s name, gender and location has remained a secret until now but DailyMail.com can exclusively reveal she is happily growing up surrounded by a large, loving family and blissfully unaware of her proximity to the caustic world of US politics. Her family have never discussed the toddler in public but when she turned two in August,...
    Presumptive President-elect Joe Biden campaigned on a message of unity, but his own party is fractured after last week's shock election. Democrats failed to expand their House majority or gain Senate control, despite high expectations. And the party's Left is complaining they're being scapegoated for the disappointments as members try to shape the apparent president-elect's nominations and policy priorities. Yet those fears seem to be misplaced, with Biden's top spokeswoman signaling liberal Democrats won't be let down by the two-term vice president once he's inaugurated. Republican strategists, including Brad Todd, suggest Biden's buckling to the Left has been a running theme of his bid, citing his running mate choice of presumptive Vice President-elect Kamala Harris. "By picking Kamala Harris, the most liberal member of the Senate by voting record, Joe Biden gave reason to believe it is his intention to allow the left-most elements of the Democratic Party to have...
    MSNBC contributor Jon Meacham has been dropped by the network after he failed to disclose that he had been helping write President-elect Joe Biden's speeches.  Meacham, a historian and Pulitzer prize-winning biographer, has been a frequent commentator for the network, where he has made appearances on Morning Joe, Deadline, and The 11th Hour with Brian Williams.  The political analyst had most recently appeared on air to comment on the presidential election as well as Biden's victory speech on Saturday night.  Meacham, however, did not tell his employers that he himself had been involved in crafting Biden's speeches, including his acceptance address in Wilmington, The New York Times reported.   Jon Meacham (pictured on the network over the weekend) will no longer serve as a paid contributor for MSNBC after he failed to disclose that he had been helping write Joe Biden's speeches A NYT report revealed Meacham had been helping...
    Boris Johnson distanced himself from Donald Trump's attempts to cling on to power in the US today as he branded him the 'previous president'.  In a comment that suggests he believes Mr Trump should cede to his victorious opponent, the Prime Minister praised a 'refreshing' discussion he had with president-elect Joe Biden last night. Mr Johnson told Prime Minister's Questions he continues to have a strong relationship with Mr Trump, who has refused to commit to a peaceful transition of power while making baseless allegations of voter fraud, as he was quizzed on the political turmoil in Washington.  But he played up yesterday afternoon's phone call with the Democrat, focussing on their shared values of standing up for Nato and tackling the climate crisis, two areas Mr Trump rode roughshod over. He said there were 'many areas' where the UK and US would now be 'able to make common cause', as he was...
    The State Department is not facilitating the phone calls between Joe Biden and foreign leaders as the GSA still refuses to acknowledge that Donald Trump lost the election. Traditionally, the State Department takes the lead in connecting the incoming president with leaders across the world. But, with President Trump refusing to concede to Biden, that is not happening.  Since the race was called in his favor Saturday, Biden has talked to at least six world leaders and has indicated he will be speaking with several more. 'I'm letting them know that America is back,' Biden told reporters on Tuesday when asked his message to the world. 'I have a number of other calls to return,' he added.  The State Department is not facilitating calls between President-elect Joe Biden and world leaders calling to congratulate him The president-elect started his call sheet on Monday with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.  On...
    Joe Biden took questions from reporters for the first time since the presidential race was called in his favor, telling reporters in Wilmington on Tuesday that nothing would stop his transition even as President Trump challenges the results of the election. The White House has directed senior government agencies to snub Biden’s transition team and the head of the General Services Administration, a Trump appointee, is refusing to release $6.3 million in funding for the incoming Biden team. “We can get through without the funding,” Biden said. “We don’t see anything and it’s slowing us down, quite frankly.” Citing their belief that there was widespread fraud in the election, Team Trump has filed several suits challenging the vote count in states where Biden narrowly won. Biden, who has already named his COVID-19 task force and is expected to reveal his first cabinet members before Thanksgiving, is not able to meet...
    WILMINGTON, Del. – President-elect Joe Biden is fighting to defend the Obama administration’s signature health care law. He is scheduled to deliver a speech on the Affordable Care Act at 1 p.m. Tuesday, the same day the Supreme Court hears arguments on its merits. The speech will be livestreamed in this article, but delays are possible. If there is not a livestream available, check back at a later time. The high court ruled eight years ago to leave intact the essential components of the law known as “Obamacare,” but President Donald Trump and his Republican allies are arguing to have it overturned. If the 6-3 conservative court agrees with the GOP, millions of Americans could lose their health care coverage. Biden's speech reflects his steady focus on health care as he prepares to take office on Jan. 20 during the worst health crisis in more than a century. One of...
    No10 left parts of a message congratulating Donald Trump on an image of Boris Johnson welcoming Joe Biden's election, it was revealed today. The extraordinary blunder came in a post hailing the Democrat's victory posted on the official Downing Street account over the weekend. Issued in the aftermath of TV networks calling the knife-edge result for Mr Biden, it quoted Boris Johnson offering congratulations to him and vice-president elect Kamala Harris on her 'historic achievement'. 'The US is our most important ally and I look forward to working closely together on our shared priorities, from climate change to trade and security,' the message said. However, eagle-eyes observers spotted traces of another - and much longer - text in the background of the slick image. A No10 post issued in the aftermath of TV networks calling the knife-edge result for Joe Biden quoted Boris Johnson offering congratulations However,...

    CONCORD, N.H. (CBS) – One New Hampshire family is reveling in the special relationship newly named president-elect Joe Biden has with their teenage son. Brayden Harrington first met Biden at a campaign rally in Concord. The two share a special bond — they both stutter. “I see him as a role model,” said Brayden. “He stutters and he made it this far in life as a president-elect, and that’s really, I would say, brave of him to put himself out there for the whole country and to be a leader. And that’s just really great of him, to just push himself.” Brayden Harrington meeting Joe Biden at a New Hampshire campaign event.

He’s the first president from the First State but to people in Greenville, Delaware, he’s just Joe. “If you live in Delaware, then you bump into the governor or the now president-elect,” Elizabeth Joyce said. Something that seems old hat just got a big bump over the weekend.

    Former President George W. Bush on Monday congratulated former Vice President Joe Biden for winning the election, after corporate media outlets declared him the victor. “Though we have political differences, I know Joe Biden to be a good man, who has won his opportunity to lead and unify our country,” Bush wrote in a statement. “The President-elect reiterated that while he ran as a Democrat, he will govern for all Americans.” Bush also called Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) for her “historic” election as the first elected woman vice president. The former president also congratulated President Donald Trump’s supporters for a “hard-fought campaign.” “He earned the votes of more than 70 million Americans – an extraordinary political achievement,” Bush wrote. “They have spoken, and their voices will continue to be heard through elected Republicans at every level of government.” Bush said that the election was a sign of America’s healthy democracy...

    Joe Biden won the race for the White House on Saturday, but compared with what lies ahead, that may have been the easy part. In his first address to the nation, the president-elect said he would unveil a group of scientists and experts on Monday to help him craft a plan to tackle the coronavirus pandemic and its economic fallout. Biden said “our work begins with getting Covid under control”, adding Americans “cannot repair the economy, restore our economy or relish life’s most precious moments” without doing so. Biden’s presidential transition team has already spent months planning for his first term, and accelerated their activities in the hours prior to his win becoming official. The team launched its presidential transition website a day before the election was officially called for Biden Now, Biden and the transition team have to build a government largely remotely, during the pandemic, and while contending...
    The result of the US presidential election has been waiting for several days now. The suspense was intense in this year 2020 given the particular circumstances in which the election took place. Due in particular to postal votes, the counting took longer than usual in some states. It was therefore only four days after the Americans went to the polls that the name of the future president of the United States was unveiled. If the wait was long for everyone, it was especially so for the candidates and their running mates. Wishing to keep a fairly normal pace of life, Democrat Kamala Harris left this Saturday morning for a jog. It was then that her mother called her to announce her victory, reports .. The 56-year-old Democrat then rushed to contact Joe Biden to congratulate him. “We made it,” we can hear...
    PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris are moving quickly to build their government while President Donald Trump refuses to concede. The first order of business is trying to get a lid on the coronavirus pandemic as case numbers are soaring across the nation. Biden is expected to announce his COVID-19 Task Force on Monday. Biden has named a former surgeon general, Dr. Vivek Murthy, and a former FDA commissioner, David Kessler, as co-chairs of the coronavirus working group. Other members are expected to be announced Monday. They’re still counting ballots inside the Pennsylvania Convention Center as Democrats claim victory and some Republicans, including Trump, are refusing to concede. “Let’s give each other a chance,” Biden said Saturday night during his victory speech. It was a message of unity from the president-elect, who spent Sunday morning at church while Trump counted strokes at his golf course...
    Presumptive president-elect Joe Biden is so far being denied resources by the Trump administration to initiate a formal transfer of power. Emily Murphy, the administrator of the General Services Administration, has yet to sign off on a transition that would allow funding, office space, and access to government agencies to the Biden team. “An ascertainment has not yet been made. GSA and its Administrator will continue to abide by, and fulfill, all requirements under the law," GSA spokeswoman Pamela Pennington said in a statement to reporters on Sunday. Many media outlets, including the Associated Press, called the race for Biden on Saturday, but President Trump is refusing to concede, instead pinning his hopes on legal challenges and recounts in battleground states where he and his allies claim there were illegal votes. Biden's team is already moving ahead with transition planning, but also called on Murphy to affirm that the Democrat...
    U.S. President-elect Joe Biden leaves after a church service in Wilmington, Delaware – Reuters ​US President-elect Joe Biden has taken the first steps towards moving into the White House 73 days from now, as Donald Trump again refused to admit defeat and tried to sow doubt about the election results. With congratulations pouring in from world leaders, Mr Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris launched a transition website, BuildBackBetter.com, and a Twitter feed, @Transition46. Meanwhile, Mr Trump played golf at his course near Washington, the same place where he was on Saturday when the US television networks delivered the news that Mr Biden had secured enough Electoral College votes for victory. “Since when does the Lamestream Media call who our next president will be?” Mr Trump complained in a tweet on Sunday.

    WASHINGTON (AP) — The Latest on President-elect Joe Biden (all times local): 11:30 a.m. Joe Biden began his first full day as president-elect the same way he does nearly every Sunday, heading to church near his home. Biden entered St. Joseph on the Brandywine in Wilmington, Delaware, shortly after the start of 10:30 a.m. Mass. He typically arrives a bit late and leaves a few minutes early so the presence of Secret Service agents doesn’t bother other attendees. It felt like any other Sunday, except for a huge swarm of media camped near the church entrance — having anticipated Biden’s arrival.

    Democratic candidate Joe Biden has won the U.S. presidential election, major U.S. news outlets are projecting. CNN, NBC and USA Today were among the outlets that have projected a win for the former vice president in the battleground state of Pennsylvania.

In a statement released shortly after the projections of Biden’s victory, he said: “We all know why Joe Biden is rushing to falsely pose as the winner, and why his media allies are trying so hard to help him: they don’t want the truth to be exposed. The simple fact is this election is far from over.” He went on to accuse the Biden campaign of...
